“Alejandroo”I’ll try to get a heat gun to loose the reg from the bottle, I also notice that the threads have some sort of rubber threadlock (if you can call that way jeje) and I think that’s the key to loose it more easily.
I’ll post any progress.


Yep most likely thread locker. I’ve taken many regulators apart over the past few years and never seen one with thread lock on it. I think that the manufacturers are starting to do this to stop law suits. Guys posting how to do it on you tube and then “unqualified” guys attempting to change them. When you buy a regulator there are instructions that installation is to be completed by a Qualified Air Smith. Ninja does NOT want people removing the regulators. As part of their manual here is the warning if you notice you reg has unscrewed. (If there is any gap between the reg and tank)

STOP!!! DO NOT FILL
OR USE YOUR SYSTEM.
Place the system on
the ground and wait for the system to
FULLY DEGAS! Contact a qualified
airsmith IMMEDIATELY!
OR CALL 1.877.NINJAUSA
(1.877.646.5287) for assistance

And for those using heat – here is Ninja’s warning about taking the bonnet off to change the pressure.

DO NOT APPLY HEAT! If the bonnet does not easily unscrew, MAKE
SURE THE SYSTEM IS COMPLETELY DEGASSED BY DEPRESSING THE
BALL VALVE TO EXHAUST ANY TRAPPED GAS.
